Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellow
MIT School of Engineering
Join us for a unique opportunity to meet Ian Waitz, the Dean of the MIT School of Engineering. He will present his vision for how MIT’s engineers will shape our collective future —from the latest innovations in technology, to frontiers of engineering education, to helping create solutions to the most challenging problems of the 21st century.
Ian A. Waitz is Dean of the MIT School of Engineering, the Jerome C. Hunsaker Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and a MacVicar Faculty Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has been on the faculty since 1991 and was the department head in Aeronautics and Astronautics from 2008 until his appointment as dean in February 2011. He has made advances in gas turbine engines, fluid mechanics, combustion, and acoustics. The principal focus of his current work is on the modeling and evaluation of climate, air-quality, and noise impacts of aviation, and the assessment of technological, operational, and policy options for mitigating these impacts.
